“The Federal Election Commission was created in 1975 to enforce the laws that govern American elections. Holding a forum to discuss the broad topic of women in the political arena, while a worthy topic, seems outside of the scope of the FEC’s mandate. But it is particularly outrageous that in creating this event, they have stacked the panels with women with one ideological view....

On March 2, two days before the case was argued before the Supreme Court, Independent Women’s Voice, a conservative nonprofit organization, published results of a survey indicating that 61 percent of the nearly 1,000 people it polled -- all of whom lived in states with federal health exchanges that are at risk of losing these subsidies -- had heard little or nothing about King v. Burwell.

All Americans want workers to be able to take time off when they are sick, need to care for someone who is sick, or welcome a new child to their family. That, in part, is why the overwhelming majority of businesses provide paid leave benefits to their workers, even though there is no legal requirement that they do so. Of course, there are still Americans who lack adequate paid leave time and struggle to balance the needs of their families with their jobs. Connecticut lawmakers want to ease that burden, and are contemplating legislation that would create a new state-based entitlement program to provide participating workers with up to 12 weeks of leave, paid at 100% of salary, each year. Sadly, however, this new program could backfire, particularly on the most vulnerable workers, by reducing employment opportunities and discouraging the creation of flexible employment arrangements.
"Today we urge the Supreme Court Justices to uphold ObamaCare as originally written -- not as later revised and extended by the IRS when only a few states took the 'carrot' of subsidies and signed up to be state exchanges -- and free millions of Americans in as many as 37 states from the burdens of ObamaCare’s mandates and penalties. A decision against the government will not repeal ObamaCare but will only return the system to what was written in the law as passed by Congress. Such a ruling would undo the decision by HHS and the IRS, on their own authority, to send tax dollars to insurance companies in states that declined to accept them because those states chose to protect their citizens as best they could from mandates and penalties...
In advance of the March 4th King v. Burwell hearing, Independent Women’s Voice (IWV) released the only comprehensive survey on Americans’ thoughts about the crucial Supreme Court case questioning the IRS and ObamaCare’s implementation in federal-exchange states. IWV commissioned Wilson Perkins Allen Research to survey 1,000 likely voters in all the potentially affected federal-exchange states plus Nevada and Colorado.

Independent Women’s Voice, run by Heather Higgins (who also heads up the repeal pledge), recently completed a study with likely voters about the court case and subsidies. While a majority cheered the idea of a ruling against ObamaCare, they also said it was very important that those harmed receive some help.
